Bankfull Flow

Bank Full Flow
Parameter Description:  Bank full flow, calculated per channel segment in cubic meters per second (CMS).
Data Type: Line (stream layer)
Field NaME; BFQ; Common Name: Bankfull flow (CMS);
Units: m3/s
NetMap Module/Tool: Fluvial Processes/Flow Calculations
Model Description:
Bankfull flow is calculated by multiplying flow velocity (calculated at bankfull flow hydrualic geometry [e.g., channel width and depth] by channel width multiplied by depth. See NetMap tools for 1) Bankfull width, 2) Bankfull depth and 3) Flow Velocity.
